Media missing mark on Libya
To the editor:
Two wars are quite enough for most and maybe too many for others. Are we being led into a third war by some deceptive reporting?

In Libya we hear of many military strikes in recent months but we only hear that the strikes are by NATO. Who furnishes the bulk of the NATO military strength: That is poorly reported. I fear that this strength is mostly American.  
Are we being led into our third war by this deception so that approval of Congress is not required? The news media should alert us to such a possibility by some better reporting.

Lions Club had help with projects
To the editor:
The Baker City Lions Club adopted a ‹-mile section of the Leo Adler Parkway in September of 2006. Since the adoption the club has installed three small picnic shelters, multiple benches, and landscaping. These projects would not have been possible without local business support and an active Lions membership.
The most recent project was installing two picnic shelters in the new Central Park in the downtown area. The Baker City Lions Club would like to thank Natural Structures, Triple C Redi-Mix, and Jeff Petry Construction for their generous donations toward this project. The Baker City Lions Club looks forward to pursuing other projects, which will enhance our beautiful town.
